Nearly $500,000 was allocated in February by San Francisco supervisors, acting as the county’s regional transportation authority, for the Great Highway Outer Sunset Traffic Management Project.
Letter to the Editor: Sunset Community Alliance Assoc. Against Irving St. Affordable Housing Project
I am writing on behalf of the SF Sunset Community Alliance Association to highlight the facts and reality of the situation about the construction of the colossal affordable housing buidling at 2550 Irving St. in the mid-Sunset.
“If Supervisor Mar truly cares about families, why does he consistently support actions that make it more difficult and expensive for anyone who must drive a vehicle?”
We appreciate you engaging with the community to make this affordable housing a success, and we would appreciate it if you could share the community’s reasonable concerns with the press next time you speak with them, including how you’re planning to engage with us to address them.
For decades, the Sunset District has lost more affordable housing than it has built. This isn’t just a statistic, it’s the stories of thousands of our neighbors being displaced, and many on the brink.
I had the honor of interviewing Mr. Mar to gain insight on his job as supervisor, his battle with coronavirus in July of 2020, and his plans to run for supervisor once more.
Through all the challenges, tragedies and opportunities that 2020 brought us, it brought out the best in our community in many ways.
Under the leadership of Mayor London Breed, the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development (MOHCD) has selected Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) to build and develop 100% affordable housing at 2550 Irving St. for families.
With the holiday season upon us, we are all craving a sense of comfort, familiarity and normalcy. We want to see our family and friends, share meals and be together. But these aren’t normal times, and this new surge is the most dangerous we’ve seen since the earliest days of the pandemic.
Mar developed the Sunset Forward initiative as a community-centered way to directly gather input from District 4 residents. Their concerns, Mar explained, will help him prioritize the work he will do with other city agencies to address common concerns.
I continue to be inspired by the thousands of people in our neighborhood … volunteering to distribute food and supplies to their vulnerable neighbors.
Join us for a virtual Town Hall focused on Sunset Blvd. and 19th Avenue.
District 4 has the lowest COVID case rate of the entire City, which speaks to our shared commitment to staying home when we can and wearing our masks and keeping our distance when we can’t.
I’ve been tested regularly for COVID-19 since the onset of this public health crisis, and my most recent test result came back positive. This experience has shown me firsthand the ways San Francisco is leading in addressing this pandemic.
“As all of us should, I’ve been getting tested regularly for COVID-19 since the onset of this public health crisis. Today, my test result came back positive for COVID-19.”
